    Default Arso

    Arso is a cedarwood and eucalyptus frag, not a spicy oriental

    Cool. Thanks for the suggestions. I've found the SL Fiille difficult to source. Must try harder!

    You can get it from Escentual.com, located in Wales. They have a 15%(?) discount on Serge Lutens currently.

    I love Arso and I agree with the recommendations so far for Le Message Oublie and Fille en Anguilles. I'd add Black Tourmaline and Slumberhouse Jeke and Norne.

    Although I tried Duro years ago, but as a can recall, perhaps that's the nearest. But Amouage Interlude is a good take, either.

    I got mine from Lucky Scent (They're in L.A.) I don't know if they ship internationally. The company itself is in Brussels, I think.

    If you like the smokey woods of Arso you would like:

    Naomi Goodsir Bois d' Ascece - Some similarities with Arso, but more smoked leather as an accent note. It's a beast.
    Olivier Dubrano Black Tourmaline - this is smokey but more incense than the campfire woods of Arso.
    CDG Tea - very dark smokey black tea which has a similar smoke as Arso, but is darker and is that point where tea turns into black.
    L'Antichambre Le Message Oubile - Extreme dryness with nuances of tea, pepper, woods, tobacco, leather - all dark with slightly smokey edge.
    Clive Christian V - although not that close to Arso, V has a similar dark character that revolves around frankincense and leafy dark notes and lots of complexity. You would probably like this one too.

    I've tried all these and own most of them. I don't think any are better than Arso. Black Tourmaline is easier to wear and Le Message Oubile has more intresesting stuff going on, but Arso is extremely good. As with all of these Profumum perfumes, there is considerable variation from year to year due to the natural changes in raw material strengths etc. so test these before just jumping in.

    Agree with buzzlepuff about Bois d'Ascese.

    I'll add La Fumee & Cartier XIII.

    I was close to buying this a month ago. I love it, but I'm not sure I could stand it. I love to smell it after a few hours, but those first few hours would be unpleasant. Much too much smoke for me. I want to love it enough to buy it!

    L'Antichambre Le Message Oubile is very much in the same vein. It is costlier per mL than Arso.

    Nope, and the L'Antichambre site doesn't seem to offer samples either.
